According to the latest Marist poll, 55% of New York voters want President-elect Obama to choose Hillary Clinton as his Secretary of State. While just 31% think Clinton should remain in the U.S. Senate and 14% aren’t quite sure.
To fill her seat, 43% of voters think Gov. David Paterson should appoint State Attorney General Andrew Cuomo. While Rep. Nydia Velazquez and Rep. Nita Lowey tie for a distant second with 5% each.
The poll suggests New Yorkers believe Clinton would be a capable Secretary of State, but the results also seem to suggest most New Yorkers aren’t particularly attached to Clinton
